This lightweight and low cost board comes with 3D printed electric skateboard parts so users can replace them cheaply when the time comes. After testing prototype boards for weeks, they found the 3D printed pieces held up well under use. From Bubblegum Boards, the Electric Bubblegum Skateboard is tiny and low cost too.

The board is 27 inches long, weighs about 12 pounds, goes 21 miles an hour with a range of 10 miles and only costs $550. The lightweight electric skateboard has a sleek design that comes in six different color varieties, including hot pink, blue, green and yellow.

The Electric Bubblegum Skateboard is currently seeking finances via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The team at Bubblegum Boards hopes to get electric skateboard parts in bulk as well as large-format printers.
